The 'bullit is packed in the trailer and heading out in the morning. I don't envy the next 1700 miles. - LOL, it does make Columbus a lot closer for the next weekend.

I don't think there will be a target on my back, I have roadster parts spread out between the garage, the shop, the painter, and the powdercoater. I will be there, likely riding around in Chris's trunk trying to get my fix......Deadlines are easy when you just keep pushing them back.....

This is a great venue, the IA State Fairgrounds. The weather always seems to work itself out (usually hot and humid) and the facilities and parking areas get better every year (they are always adding more paved lots, instead of gravel). See ya there!
